|Fred Van Eps - Pearl Of The Harem - Fred Van Eps|
Harry P. Guy composed "Pearl of the Harem", an "Oriental Two-Step", in 1901. The tune had been in circulation for over a decade when Fred Van Eps recorded his banjo version in June of 1911. It's a nice tune, and a very nice performance by Van Eps, with his old-fashioned, percussive playing style. From 78rpm disk.
